    AT&T Loses Subscribers And Lowers Forecast, Shares Careen Lower

    AT&T got punched in the scrotum today, hard, off by about 6% on news that the hurricanes last month shaved a good $90 million off their expected top line for the quarter. Given that T is a stable dividend paying telcom that barely moves 1% on a good day, 6% is a monumental decline. Normally, I […]

    Planning A China Trip Year End, Checking Out Some Organics

    Well, well, look at that. The AMZN is ripping higher again today and the calls I sold at $4.85 yesterday are now fetching $14, aka a 300% return had I held on a day longer. Nevertheless, hindsight is 20/20 and there is no point lamenting over could have’s. I’ve spent some time the past few days perusing […]

    Done With The Markets For Now

    The AMZN trade proved to be a profitable one, albeit nothing major. I closed out my calls for +38% and will spend the balance of the week away from the markets. My speculative account will likely remain in cash for some time, as I shift towards a more active schedule. I do however, enjoy entertaining a […]

    NVIDIA Is Still A Buy

    See that man in the picture? That’s Jensen Huang, CEO of Nvidia and a man who’s overseen his stock go from $23 to $188 in a mere 18 months. These guys have been killing it all year. They own the market for AI and Deep Learning applications with their $16k a pop GPUs, and are now taking […]

    All Time Highs

    I sold out of AMZN, about 2 and a half weeks ago, right at the fucking bottom. Since then, the NASDAQ has slowly stair-stepped higher, now trading right back at ALL TIME HIGHS. I don’t expect it to keep ripping higher, unfettered, at a pace of 1% every day, but I do expect more gains. Then […]

    Another Meeting With JETRO

    I have an appointment with JETRO, the trade arm of the Japanese govt, coming up next next Tuesday in Bangkok to help arrange some potential buyers for Japanese fishery products. If history is of any indication, this will be a non-event, simply because government workers never get anything productive done and have an agenda of their […]

    Is Shopify A Scam?

    2 days ago, renowned short seller Citron came out with a report suggesting SHOP is a multi-level pyramid scheme, comparing it to the likes of HLF, sending the stock plunging down 15%+. Whether HLF is or is not considered a pyramid scheme is still yet to be determined, but what we do know is that the […]

    Risk On

    I’ve had a slow start to this week, due to slight sickness. I’m feeling a lot better this morning, however, having spent the better part of yesterday devouring medicine and taking naps. The risk on trade is clearly back in the markets, evidenced by strong Chinese markets and NASDAQ back at highs. European markets are […]

    My Current Investment Strategy And How I’ve Grown

    It takes a lot of discipline, years of being on the receiving end of profound losses to learn how to successfully ebb and flow with the markets. The unexpected happens more often than expected and bad luck becomes a term lightly tossed around, an excuse of sorts for being caught on the wrong side of a trade. Short […]

    Machine Learning Is Your Future

    We undergoing a boom in machine learning and AI technology on a grandiose scale and I endeavor to be positioned to benefit from it in every way. In addition to owning shares of some of the companies leading this change, I have also been on the lookout the past 12 months for new applications for this technology. […]
